Episode 192 - Adam'S Son
Instead of just confronting Leslie about her affair with Sean, Alexis continues to toy with her. When Leslie stops by Alexis's apartment to get her to sign some documents, Alexis compliments Leslie on her outfit (not wearing pastels) and tells her that the bracelet she gave her would go perfect with it. If only Leslie had the bracelet. Alexis even offers to have it fixed but Leslie assures her that she will take care of it. Leslie goes to Sean and once again tells him that Alexis suspects the two of them. Sean believes Leslie is being paranoid, but Leslie is on point. Heck, she even knows when she lost the bracelet.
Instead of toying with Sean, Alexis confronts him directly about the affair and even shows him the bracelet. Sean is much quicker on his feet than Alexis probably gave him credit as he claims that Leslie probably dropped the bracelet when she returned Alexis's jewelry to her safe the night Alexis was shot. Alexis finds it plausible and decides to drop it for now. Besides, doesn't she have a campaign to run.
Jeff calls a quick meeting at Denver Carrington to have Dex reinstated onto the pipeline project. No one objects and Dex is amazingly able to finally get that easement from Colby Co. Adam notes that Blake will not be thrilled when he learns what Jeff did and Blake turns out not to be thrilled. Jeff somewhat understands and offers his resignation as Blake's campaign manager (he didn't work that much anyway). Blake accepts the resignation even if Krystle tries to talk him out of it. We needed at least one scene with Krystle and one scene is all we get.
Why does Jeff need to be a campaign manager anyway, he owns half of Colby Enterprises and a decent amount of Denver Carrington? It also gives Jeff a chance to pursue Sammy Jo even if Sammy Jo seems a little reluctant so as not to hurt Steven's feelings. The two finally give into each other while in California for a horse auction. Good for Sammy Jo and let's give Jeff credit for bagging another female lead on the show. Thankfully, Krystle and Alexis are safe from Jeff's desires.
There really wasn't much going on in this episode. We learn from Dex that Denver Carrington's tankers in Natumbe are only half full. Dex asks Sean about it and Sean has another great excuse - they have yet to be completely filled. Dex has no choice but to accept it and to give the subtle hint to Sean that he is onto him and that those tankers better be full when they leave Natumbe. Sean can handle himself.
Leslie continues to fear for her life from Sean, and Sean continues to threaten her. When Dex agrees to rehire Leslie, Leslie turns him down and tells him everything about Sean. Who does Dex go to with this information? Alexis, of course. Alexis is surprised to learn that the man she married is actually the son of Joseph Anders, the man who killed himself and blames Alexis for it. Funny, how these things seems to bite you in the ass.
Since the episode is titled "Adam's Son", I guess we should talk about that. Adam still does not like having Jesse in Denver but Dana tries to convince Adam that it does not change anything. This, of course, is not good enough for Adam who goes over to Karen's place to find Jesse. Karen happens to be on a walk with Dana (and Adam did not know that). At least it gives Adam and Jesse an opportunity to enjoy a few beers and get to know each other. Wait, that doesn't happen. The two begin to fight. The fight is broken up when Dana and Karen return.
The only problem is that Karen is knocked over which causes her to go into labor. Who knew that could happen? Karen is rushed to the hospital and after many hours she finally gives birth to a big baby boy. It most definitely was not premature. Adam and Dana are excited to see the baby while Jesse shows more concern for Karen. Later, Adam and Dana visit Karen who is with the baby. Karen is not excited to allow Adam and Dana to hold the child, and once she gets it back in her clutches she informs them (as she backs up for some reason) that she cannot give up her son. Gee, who didn't see that coming.
Since this recap seems rather short, allow me to point out a couple of stupid things (yes, I know there is more than two) from this episode:
1. While in California, Sammy Jo suggests to Jeff that they should bring the kids next time since they would love it there. L.B. and Lauren (not that she matters) definitely would since they lived there already.
2. Steven tells Sammy Jo that the two of them have always helped each other and that he feels a little bit slighted that Sammy Jo went to Jeff with her financial problems. I must have missed those episodes when Sammy Jo and Steven helped one another. Hell, the two were hardly civil to one another until Season 7.
Dex: Why is Sean Rowan in Denver?
Alexis: Why is anyone in Denver?
